How to draw FOOTLITES

Zentangle pattern: FootlitesCZT® Carole Ohl’s blog is one of my personal favorites and Footlites is her recent new tangle pattern.

I really enjoy Carole’s philosophy, her style of tangling and her creative tangling tips that I always find really helpful. This one on “making bridges” is a good example.

Check out what tanglers are doing with Carole’s cool Tangle-A-Day calendar for daily Zentangle® exercises, here.

Here in my example of Footlites, I drew back-to-back versions and added a bit of shading to it. I know, adding shading to “footlites” seems kinda illogical ;-)

Carole illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Footlites, here.

Check out the tag caroleo for more of Carole’s patterns on TanglePatterns.com.

    Hi Linda and everyone,
    As asked, I’m stopping by and saying HI ! :-))
    I am so addicted to this wonderful relaxation of tangling, calms my mind magnificently! I have been gradually working through an “exercise” using tangles to decorate around each letter of our Alphabet and so far I am up to Q. As well, I usually make time to work each day using a particular tangle, finding out if I can modify a particular design or not…….this is enlightening,(!) as sometimes my ‘variations’ are great and sometimes very UN-great ! I am only a newbie (since the end of last year, but I’m tumbling through tangling with great delight!
    By the way, does anyone know of any CZT ‘s in Queensland
    Australia ??

    Hi. I love the footlites pattern. It’s easy and fun to do. I used it to make ‘bird feathers.’ Thanks for sharing!

  • Tracy

    I’ve used this too. Nice alternative to just “lines-in-the background”, with it’s special effect.

  • Maura

    Thank you for building and managing this site! I am just getting started and appreciate all the wonderful resources.
    I am, however, not seeing most of the “How To” images. Some do come up but many others are blank where the actual instructions should be.
    Any ideas on why this is happening?
